Upcoming : Academy Gatchaman New God Phoenix

Now this is unexpected. From the Korean (?!) manufacturer Academy comes the New God Phoenix from the anime Gathcaman II.

The only details so far are that the kit will come in multi colored parts and will include the Gatchaman team and their individual vehicles which can be stored inside New God Phoenix. No other details like release date and price so far.

The nostalgia fuel is strong in this one. I used to have the Popy toy and I was actually more exposed to Gatchaman II and Gatchaman Fighter instead of the original Gatchaman.

Upcoming : Hasegawa Crusher Joe Fighter 1

The actual model of the upcoming Fighter 1 from Crusher Joe has appeared. Looks good!

A definite get for me! More pictures on Hobbysearch.

Upcoming : Bandai Arbalest with Emergency Deployment Booster

I’m looking forward to this one though I’m not quite sure why Arbalest is in a subdued color scheme. I think I really need to watch the latest Full Metal Panic series.

This one is coming in February @ 4,320 JPY. More pictures at Hobby Search.

Upcoming : Hasegawa Crusher Joe Fighter 1

It’s about time I say! Back in the 1980s I had the 1/144 Takara release and of course, I wrecked it by painting with Tamiya markers. Since this is from Hasegawa’s Creative Works line, it should be quite nicely detailed. Plus it’s in a nice 1/72 scale to boot.

Can’t wait for the actual finished kit to be shown. More pics at Hobby Search.

Upcoming : Super Minipla Beast King Go-Lion

Official pictures of this upcoming toy/kit are now online. Each lion will be packaged in its own box with weapons and a stick of chewing gum. They can then be combined into this 18cm tall Super Robot.

The proportions of the individual lions look off to me but Go-Lion itself looks brilliant. And it seems to be quite poseable too. Amazing! Even better is that it’s probably the cheapest route you can take right now to own a combining Go-Lion.

Coming in August @ 5,292 JPY. More pictures on Hobbysearch.
